Travel Photo Contest – Miranda Hall

Through the spokes…

While on a trip to India last year with my Aunt, I wanted to take a photo of one of the many monkeys in the area. I snapped a few photos of a monkey on a leash through our cab window. The owner got very angry with our Cab driver and demanded I pay him for the photos I took. So our Cab driver helped me with the language barrier and I only had to pay a few rupees. A little later that same day, we stopped by a market area, the cab driver pointed to a monkey and said in his broken English… “this monkey free. Take many pictures. He no want rupees”. I turned to see where the monkey was… That is when I saw this beautifully framed monkey and its baby. Just sitting there waiting for me to take its photo. A trip and a moment I will never forget.
